well, i want to build a piezo pedal to switch from piezo pics and piezo amp to magnetics pics and magnetic amp without loosing the effects loops!

i have already designed it, but im looking for corrections and on help:

HOW DO I DO TO MAKE A SWITCH MAKE SIMULTANEOUSLY THE WORK OF 2 SWITCHES?

HOW DO I INSTALL A LITTLE RED LIGHT FOR WHEN ONE OF THE "MODES" IS ACTIVATED?

IS ALL I NEED 6 STEREO JACKS, A SWITCH, A LITTLE RED LIGHT AND A 9V Battery?(besides cables!)
thks!

HERE IM POSTING THE BLUEPRINTS!

I left out all the grounding wires and whatnot to save time/clutter, but I guess you know what to ground, right?
I didn't know how you wanted the LED to work, so I just put two seperate ones, one lights up when the piezo is selected, and the other lights up when the magnetic pickups are selected.

edit: To anyone who's going to say that both outputs will be on all the time, I realise that now. I sent the TS a new diagram via PMs.....

sorry I didn't see that you posted in the thread again....

nope, it shouldn't be very difficult at all.

You'll need to ground the 'sleeve' tabs of the jacks (the red wires in the picture go to the tip of the jack), so if you have mono jacks, it's the only other solder tab.
You can also ground the signal from the piezo/ mag. (whatever one you're not using), by grounding the solder lugs on the 3pdt switch that have nothing soldered to them in the picture.

and that's pretty much it...
Just connect those points with some soldered wires, and you should be good.

hope that's enough to get this built for you.
If you need more help, feel free to pm me/ post here again....

If you're just wanting like to have effects always on one pickup, then yea that's possible. Just hook it up to when you switch to it, it works with one pickup. 3 way switcher anyone?
I got some good guitars, yo.

A 3-way wouldn't let you use an LED, either, though....

and it's a lot easier to find a 3PDT stomp switch than making a 3-way work well on a pedal....

OH a pedal. I thought he meant on his guitar. I've been in guitar-mod mode for a few days now. xP
